I have no idea what you're really asking. Perhaps if you described the problem you're having?

You could run an installer in Compatibility Mode but it would pointless. Hell, Compatibility Mode isn't really even used any more unless the software you're running is ridiculously old.

Elevation is only required for installers because of the locations they write to in the file system and the registry. For security reasons today, normal don't have admin access to their machines. They're not able to write to protected parts of the file system, like C:\Windows, or anything under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE in the registry. Even Admins, by default, don't run anything using their admin privileges. You have to explicitly launch the app "as administrator", or the app has to request elevation from Windows, and then you're prompted to OK the requested operation.
